He’s arguably the funniest and best Kenyan comic as we speak. Skinny and with a truly genius sense of humor, and some of the best punchlines in town, Njugush will floor you with the jokes and knock you over with the witty lines. He’s so good, so fresh, so hilarious, he’s simply irreplaceable. And incomparable. All corporates seem to be coming for him now. And with the help of his now-pregnant wife, the lanky lass has made quite an indelible name for himself.
His facial expressions are everything. He’s also super funny and creative. And can really nail some impressions of these SDA women. But lets go back to his facial expressions. No one does them better. He’s just too good. And too timely, too.
Unbeknown to many, Terrence is arguably Kenyans’ biggest creative. He’s the brain behind some of the biggest comics acts in Kenya today. And he’s creative to a fault. He’s dangerously funny.

Straight from the alleys of the sprawling Githurai estate, where all manner of crimes and counterfeits and filth converge; Desagu is the exemplification of the ghetto’s rut. And with comedy, he has hilariously brought out the street’s grittiness to the World. One joke at a time.
His unmistakable luhya accent is his biggest asset. And he doesn’t play when it comes to it. He has mastered the art of plucking at everyday happenings and converting them into classic comedic gems. He has a signature attire to back up his act too. And now, all musicians seem to want a piece of him in his music video.
The only woman to feature in this list, she plies her trade in Kikuyu. And we are glad she chose that route. Kikuyu comics are a freakishly funny lot.
